Show all Clientless VPN user sessions and cookies stored
This is useful to identify the health of the Clientless VPN rewrite engine.
Refer to Table: Rewrite Engine Statistics for information on rewrite statistics and their meaning or purpose.
Enable debug logs on the firewall running Clientless VPN Portal
Enable packet capture on the firewall running the Clientless VPN Portal
When you execute packet capture commands, a consent page appears after end users log in to the Clientless VPN portal, informing them that the packets captured during their user session will contain unencrypted (clear-text) data. If users consent to the packet capture session, they then proceed to the applications landing page, where packet capture begins. If users do not consent to the packet capture session, they are logged out of the Clientless VPN portal and must contact an administrator to proceed with a regular user session (without packet capture).
If you execute packet capture commands for user sessions that are already in progress, those users are automatically logged out of the Clientless VPN portal and must log back in to accept or decline the packet capture session.
